    The Disability Support Network is welcoming a second Covid-19 booster for our most vulnerable

    The Disability Support Network is welcoming a second Covid-19 booster for our most vulnerable


    The Government intends to roll it out from mid-June.

    It's for older people, aged care facility residents, disability care facility residents aged 16 and over and severely immunocompromised people of the same age.

    Chief Executive Peter Reynolds says it's long been speculated that further boosters would be neccessary.

    He says it's good the Government is front footing this and providing access for disabled people at the same time as other vulnerable groups.
